AbstractTo transport bitumen via pipeline, it is blended with lighter hydrocarbon fractions, yielding a less viscous, diluted bitumen ('dilbit').
Although often considered safer than other means of transport (i.e., railways, barges), incidents such as the one that occurred near the Kalamazoo River (Michigan, USA) in June 2010 have highlighted the potential environment risk caused by dilbit pipeline rupture.
There are few detailed investigations into the fate and transport of dilbit in the vadose zone and groundwater -a knowledge gap identified over five years ago...
